Women’s Tennis Jessica Agra and Her Final Season for the Broncos

By: Jessica Shusko '15

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Coming off an amazing season, senior Jessica Agra looks forward to finishing even stronger for her final season with the Broncos. After receiving the First Team All-WCC honors for doubles, Agra (JA) hopes to have even more success this season before she returns to the Philippines. For her senior season, Jessica Agra has set some high goals for herself, and hopes to have even more success than she did last season.

 

SCB: What did you do for training over the summer to keep up your tennis shape?

JA: I worked with my tennis coach on court and also got a strength and conditioning trainer to help me with my workouts.

 

SCB: How does it feel to be going into your final season for the Broncos?

JA: It is definitely bittersweet. I'm excited for this coming year because the team is more experienced and we're all working hard to have the best season yet, but at the same time it makes me sad to know that this will be my last year.

 

SCB: What are you going to miss most after the season is over?

 JA: My teammates and coaches for sure. I've gotten really close to them over the past few years and it's going to be really hard not seeing them everyday, which is what I'm used to. I will definitely miss the tennis aspect of it and competing for the team. There are so many things that I'm going to miss, but hanging out with everyone would be at the top of my list for sure.

 

SCB: How did it feel to win All-WCC First-Team honors at the end of last season in doubles?

JA: It always feels good to have people acknowledge what you do. I've always loved playing doubles, especially with Katie as my partner, and getting the All-WCC First-Team honors just makes me want to do even better this coming season.
 

SCB: What are some goals you have set for yourself going into your senior year season?

JA: My goal has always been to win as many matches as I can for the team, and it's not any different this year. Aside from that, I want to be fitter. I think that getting even faster and stronger would help my game a lot, whether it be singles or doubles.

 

SCB: Do you plan on continuing playing tennis competitively once you graduate?

JA: If the opportunity arises, I would want to play doubles and represent the Philippines, but I don't know yet. I guess it depends on how I feel and my performance this year.

 
 

GO BRONCOS!
